    Started taking this because I wanted a lighter period and more time between periods. I had my period before I started taking this, after one Week, my period showed up again and hung out for 3 weeks. 3 out of the 4 weeks I was on it, I was bleeding. The selling point of this particular pill is to have more control over your period, and it certainly doesn't give you that.

    Received this from my pharmacy as a generic for Amethia. Had no previous problems with any side effects from my birth control until I started taking this. Been taking for a little over a month and I've had significant weight gain, fatigue, and mood change. will not be taking again, calling my doctor to ensure I never receive the generic again.

    I have been on this for a little over a year. I have not been happy on this drug. I have felt wiped out and moody all the time. I get horrible muscle spasms for most of the cycle and I can't sleep at night because of them. I also have horrible bloating and I have gained some weight.

    it works as far as not getting pregnant and I like not having a period but after nearly a year I've noticed that my hair is falling out and I have no energy. my thyroid is fine and those are rare side effects of this drug. time to switch.
